7 simple rules for a life in hiding



Transcribed Text for those who don't want to watch it

For those that don't know: This is from a movie about Bob Dylan called 'I'm not there'.
The original text is from a longer poem Dylan wrote in 1964 called 'Advice for Geraldine on her miscellaneous birthday'.
Link is here for those interested:

I think he pretty much hit the nail on the head (especially concerning his own situation shortly afterwards, when turned to rock'n'roll), but what do you think?
Which rules would you add?

So what you're trying to say is, the only rule is to NOT get caught?

I guess you meant 'is NOT not to get caught'.

I mean these 7 rules are not about 'catching a thief' or something. It's about staying unnoticed by others in general, about escaping your past for various reasons, about others not having certain opinions about you or expectations towards you.

So 'don't get caught' would not be enough.

Well, Dylan always looked suspicious, didn't he?

With his sheets like metal and his belt like lace
And his deck of cards missing the jack and the ace
And his basement clothes and his hollow face
Who among us can think he could outguess him?

Nevertheless, the best way to hide is to cook some acetone peroxide and relax.

I'm not sure about the best way, but a really good way of not getting bothered by people is by being a bear.

Unless you're a cute little panda.


Except for this panda, he certainly won't get bothered.
